    I caved and ordered :< Sadly couldn't use the p&p + 20% discounts, bleh D:
    That skirt is lovely!! I was pretty tempted to go with this in purple. But ended up just going for a sage butterfly cami and matching scarf and a skirt / dress . Really wishing I'd got the skirt now too :|

    So jealous! Tried a cherry pair on today and was 50/50 whether to get some. I'm usually a 6 but they felt a bit big :S Tons of room at the end, and sides felt clumpy, then the bit of tongue material just buckled up and didn't sit right.
    5's felt nice and snug, but felt like my toe might touch the end too much. But loooved them. Never owned docs before, I'm wondering if wearing them in would stretch them lengthways a bit?

    Also tried on some shoes by Underground today. Think they may have been the most comfiest shoe's I've ever worn.
    Saw the 90 price tag and nearly had a heart attack. :'(

    I'm usually a large 8 (one foot is 8 1/2 and the other is an 8) and I got an 8, they are spacious enough at the ends, can definitely feel they need to be broken in width ways though. I wouldn't get 5's if there isn't much toe room tbh, I'd rather go for slightly big and wear thick socks!! This is my first pair of Docs too.

    That's the problem, I was wearing thick socks when I tried them and the sixes still felt a wee bit large :\ So would assume when broken in a bit they would feel even larger.
    The main problem was the tongue area, it crinkled in really weird places and just didn't sit right against my foot.
    I've heard that can be the hardest part to break in, but this crinkling effect was weird.

    The fives felt absolutely fine width-wise with heaps of sideways toe space, just my big toe nail was touching a little at the end. Maybe TMI but that could probably do with a trim, so might cut them and try a few more pairs on before I order some, maybe I just had a weird pair of sixes, or the five will fit with trim nails.

    I love the look of them, determined to own a pair! Can't think of anything better for trudging through fields and getting mah stomp on with
    Just need to decide between the purple ones you have, or the cherry reds.

    Okay, double post but I found some bargains on Ebay and couldn't resist.
    Now have both these pairs on there way to me

    Took a chance and ordered a 5 in Docs, at this price and only worn a few times I should make my money back if they don't fit. Usually see second hand pairs go for 50+, these were 30 inc P&P, hope my risk pays off!





    Then these unwanted Christmas pressie, exact style I tried on yesterday and paid less than 50% retail. Score! :P


    Just waiting to see what the catch is with both pairs. No way can I be this lucky!

    The Docs arrived and they were too small, felt waaay smaller than the 5s I tried on in the shop /cry.

    They're so pretty too, much nicer shine to them then I'd thought. Balls. Guess I'l have to start selling stuff on Ebay instead of just buying xD
